I did this illustration long time ago. I was in the Ten Ton Studios forum participating in weekly challenges to improve my drawing skills. In the forum there were a lot of good creators already working on the field, like Reilly Brown, Aaron Kuder, Khoi Pham, Chris Burnham, Steve Willhite, and others… we also publish there contests and challenges from other sites. So at that moment there was a contest in Dark Horse and Mike Mignola was going to be the judge. The premise of the contest was to recreate a cover in the way you would like and Mike himself was going to be the jury and select the best versions of the cover.
I had the good luck of being selected as a honorable mention. And here is the post about that contest if you are interested in reading about it. Thanks!
